Ok, I have to start with bright, happy news. I photographed one of my favorite families tonight. The mom was looking GORGEOUS in a vintage dress that I covet (give it to me when you are done-*if* I can fit in it, ok?). There were three cool homeless men hanging out like 5 feet away smoking pot. Yes, this is day two in a row that I am talking about mariuana on my baby photography blog. Whatever, obviously I need something to make me feel better, and I wish it was that but it is not. Anyways, they were super polite as they smoked their joints around this adorable 2 year old and sweet, sweet 4 year old. Perfect.
Well, I got the salt-on-fire-in-the-belly-button treatment again today, but I am feeling so bad. I think with a chronic illness like this, you get to this point where you are just so tired. So tired of being sick. The hard part is that I am not actually getting any food in me, so I am weak. And tired. And my husband is obsessed with aquaponics and is mostly only doing that and Amelia just had the flu and I am just tired. And caffiene makes me sick so I have to give up coffee and I am sad about that. Did I mention that I am tired? And can’t have caffeine?
Overall, though, I am super happy that I have booked TWENTY FIVE mini sessions. That is just nuts. And I still have people emailing and calling to request a session.
We have a crazy month ahead of us. My lovely office manager, Kellie, will take good care of everyone (and me!) and Reg, my gorgeous sales manager, will help everyone with ordering. All I have to do is take the photos, and that is what fills my heart with joy, so I think it will be a good month as long as Kellie and Reg pick up my slack (total bonus included at the end of the month if they are reading this post and mention the bonus:). I mean, they have to read my blog, right?
So, I filled up my two weekend mini photo sessions completely, and opened up two more dates if you are interested. Wendesday, October 12th at Chataqua in south Boulder, and Wonderland Lake in north Boulder on Saturday, October 22nd. So if you were on the waiting list or just want to schedule a mini session email me asap.
How am I going to remember all these kids names? That is the thing I am worrried about the most. I know I will get beautiful images of each family that is special to who THEY are, but if I see them on the street I might not remember, and I ALWAYS remember kids names. Parents names, eh. Kids, for sure. So, if you are doing a mini session with me and I call you a weird name during the session or ask what your husband’s name is ten times, please know that I LOVE all my families, but this year there are just so many mini photography sessions and I am tired and might not remember. But I still love you and your kids.
p.s. posting another sweet photo from this session, because it is all I have on my laptop, and my hard drive is still stupid crashed. So, this is all I have that is sized for blog.
pps. That is my sweet new kitty simba. He has the same roar and tenacity as the real lion king. Love him.
ppps. I did everything for my computer hard drive crash and I still can’t see my photos:( All edited shoots for the last year are backed up though, so no worries….
